In 2014 Dementia Action Alliance surveyed people affected by dementia, as well as health and social care professionals to find out what impact the DAA has had since it's inauguration in 2010. 

The survey was completed by over 1,300 respondents, including over 100 living with dementia. The results showed us:

  • The work of Dementia Action Alliance has resulted in a step-change in attitudes to, and understanding of, dementia.
  • There has been significant improvements in work force development
  • Progress has been made on establishing research priorities and improving diagnosis rates.
  • There is work to be done to support carers.
  • There is work to be done to design services around the needs of people living with dementia.
  • There is work to be done to make environments fully dementia-friendly.

The findings have been used to inform the Prime Minister's Challenge on Dementia 2020.
